Win Sandy Puc For A Day At YOUR Studio!

Hi Everyone,

I’m realllllllly excited to inform you that one lucky winner of the “Sam U to You” raffle at the PPA Charities Gala on January 15th at IUSA will win a day with me at your studio!

To enter, arrive at the PPACH Gala on time to buy one of 100 water bottles containing a $25 gift certificate that can be redeemed for some cool stuff on http://www.ukandu.com. You will get a water bottle to use for the rest of your time at IUSA AND be entered into a drawing for a FREE full-day consultation from me at your studio! Some benefits to you: I will pay for my own transportation, visit your studio, help you with your marketing–and buy you lunch! Note: If the bottles run out, we will still supply gift certificates but I encourage you to engage in the contest fun!

The $25 certificates can be redeemed at http://www.ukandu.com, which featues a wealth of marketing information. Many of the marketing kits are only $20 so you can apply the difference towards more than one kit. This is a great way to split the difference and stock up with two or three kits for the New Year!

The Charities Celebration Event will take place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in the Lone Star Ballroom on Level 2, beginning at 8 p.m. I am so honored to help PPA Charities, and I also look forward to visiting the winner’s studio. Hope to see you all there!

Best,

Sam

Skydiving in a Wedding Dress

I have to say, skydiving in a wedding dress—even if it didn’t include jumping out of a plane—was one of the most unique experiences of my life.

Last Thursday my crew and I had the special opportunity to visit the friendly folks at SkyVenture Colorado for a once-in-a-lifetime shoot: inside a tunnel with wind speeds of more than 100 miles per hour dressed in elegant formal attire.

Thanks to my awesome instructor, Brad Cole, the shoot was incredibly successful and the wedding dress somehow remained fairly intact, minus the millions of beads that came off the dress and pelted us all over!  (Don’t worry, we used a gown purchased from a consignment store—not my personal one!)

The craziness was part of promoting my upcoming tour with special guest Jerry Ghionis in conjunction with our partners at SmugMug. The final image from Thursday’s shoot will be used in a in a SmugMug backlit kiosk at the upcoming 2011 WPPI Las Vegas Convention and Trade Show.

But first, the best images were sent to retouching guru Mike Long for his unrivaled Photoshop building. He slaved away all weekend working his magic, and now the final image will now be sent to SmugMug for finishing touches.

Here is  the image as it is now, and as soon as we see it in Vegas, we will be sure to share it with the rest of you.

Thanks so much to Brad and his team at SkyVenture Colorado. With such an off the wall request, we could not have picked a better location!

Where in the World should Sandy Puc’ go?

Introducing the 2010 Sandy Puc’ Nomad Adventure…

Bacharach, Germany

Germany is among the early favorites in the 2010 Sandy Puc Nomad Adventure.

HELP! I need a country! The first weekend of every December, I pick a country, fly there, and in 48 hours, shoot a city and fly home. I do not sleep, and I push myself as hard as I can. Last year Turkey was breathtaking.

Rhodos Island, Greece

Greece would certainly be quite the adventure.

This year I don’t know where to go! I am thinking India, Bali, Nepal, Puerto Rico, Sweden or Greece… But really I want something small and unheard of.

You can help me decide by going to my Facebook page. Simply click on the “2010 Sandy Puc Nomad Adventure” gallery to see all the breath-taking destinations.
Under each image (which represents a suggested country), simply “like” the destination you want to vote for.
Moscow, Russia

Moscow, Russia, would be so incredible.

Whatever country has the most Facebook “likes” will be my destination. Thanks to everyone who contributes their thoughts and votes.

I can’t wait!

November Update: Santa is at Sandy Puc' Portrait Design

Hello everyone,

The temperature is dropping, the snow is falling, and I can’t believe it’s that time of year already.

With the holiday season upon us, the studio is full of fun festivities and events. Today we kicked off the beginning stages of our Santa Charity with Santa Claus himself.

Our 10th annual Colorado Christmas event benefiting the Children’s Hospital of Denver began today with an appearance from Santa Larry.

Day 1 marked another year of beautifully dressed children and the excitement of getting the first glimpse of the Jolly Old Elf himself.

A few slots are open for tomorrow (Friday), Saturday and Monday, so call now to reserve yours before they’re all booked up.

This is our biggest fundraiser involving Children’s Hospital, as we make a donation for each family portrait.

Halloween Charity and Open House Recap

With beautiful Colorado weather, the annual Halloween Charity and Open House was a smashing success.

Family-themed costumes highlighted the afternoon, including appearances by the Grinch family and Cowboy family.

We’re pleased to announce that four barrels of food were filled for The Food Bank of the Rockies.

Contact us now if you’re interested in being placed on our blood donors’ list for next year to benefit the Children’s Hospital Blood Bank.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sale Coming Soon

In the sprit of the giving season, Sandy Puc Portrait Design is giving you $25 for FREE. Purchase a $75 gift certificate on Black Friday (Nov. 26) or Cyber Monday (Nov. 29), and we’ll add an additional $25.

There’s no limit on the number you can purchase, so stock up on as many as you want in order to save on everything from prints, albums, frames and accessories.

Call 303.730.8638 or stop by our studio to purchase, or send an email to cece@sandypuc.com to reserve yours now.

I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful changes in the Colorado weather. It is truly a blessing to live in such a glorious state.

Best,

Sandy
